India hands over G20 term presidency to Brazil

The 18th G20 Leaders Summit held in New Delhi, the capital of India, has ended. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who chaired the summit with the main theme of “One Earth, One Family, One Future”, announced that the summit ended on the last day of the session, after the joint declaration was officially accepted by the G20 countries and the G20 term presidency was transferred to Brazil. Modi suggested holding an informal meeting in November to evaluate the decisions taken at the summit before the end of India’s presidency. Brazilian President Lula da Silva, who will chair the G20 as of December 1, stated in his statement after the handover ceremony that he will work to “build a just world and a sustainable planet.”

Although the summit has officially ended, bilateral meetings of G20 leaders continue. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is expected to attend the international press conference to be held within the scope of the summit after the bilateral meetings.
